Yes. We tested and (recovered undamaged in liquid ballistic recovery containment) our 9mm diameter bullets @ over major 163PF and our 40 Cal bullets @ 167PF and there was no leading in ports, comp baffles or riflings. The coating and bullets were so well preserved that we could literally re-load and re-shoot those bullets. Our JB-A217® coating is made for major PF requirements, but your mileage may vary based on your barrel, COL, reloading techniques, propellants, crimp and charge weights.
We have always given those out free of charge to in-person sales only, and at matches we sponsor.
All of our coatings are proprietary secrets. No bullet coating manufacturer will give you specific information about their coatings.
What we will tell you about our JB-A217® coating:
It is our newest dedicated GEN IV exotic polymer bullet coating. It's a proprietary durable lubricative high temperature resistant heat-cured polymer base coating specifically formulated and manufactured for coating firearm bullet projectiles.
Extensive testing we've done with our JB-A217® bullet coating has shown a 40-110 FPS increase over comparable (weight, nose design and diameter) swaged metal jacketed bullet velocities, and a 30-80 FPS increase over any other comparable (weight, diameter and nose design) coated bullets sold in the USA. (We've tested them all). This means you can use less propellant to achieve the same velocities which saves you $$$ and lengthens brass life considerably.
This is especially attractive to our USPSA and IPSC shooting customers that demand a high velocity - lower charge weight ammunition.
We have pushed this coating to 2,990 FPS in long bull barreled specially designed test barrels with 24 BHN hard cast pistol bullets and the coating remained fully intact on the bullet with no leading.
This tenacious coating literally becomes an integral part of the bullet and cannot be removed by mere firing it through a barrel.
Our JB-A217® bullet coating far outperforms and exceeds the lubricating, temperature and velocity performance of ALL other available bullet coatings in the USA.
Our GEN IV JB-A217® bullet coating costs us around nine times more to produce and use than if we bought a popular subpar bullet coating and used it like all the other sheeple are doing. We won't settle for less. NO OTHER bullet coating available on the US market can produce these superior results. PERIOD.
Yes. Contact us and we'll set you up with special pricing for whatever you need in larger quantities. Larger quantities are special order and are subject to longer wait times.
Yes. Any length barrel is fine with our coated bullets. Competitor brands of coated pistol bullets can't be used in longer or compensated/ported barrels due to their having a thin subpar powder-coating/paint coating that burns off, causes smoke and thick lead deposits when used with longer carbine and rifle length barrels. NOTE: FOR SAFETY REASONS, our 9/38/357 round nose semi-pointed ogive design "RNFB" bullets should NOT be used in ANY lever action or tube magazine where your magazine requires stacking cartridges end-to-end. Those type magazines require a wide flat nose bullet.
All popular smokeless propellants can be used with any coated bullet we sell.

No. We now offer (5) five different custom diameters for for most of the 9/38/357 bullets we currently sell. The .358 diameter is mostly special order and is $15.00 extra per 2,500 qty. Our 40 Cal bullets are available in (2) diameters and our 45 Cal bullets are also available in (2) diameters, all at NO additional charge.
No. (500) is our minimum order.
No. For liability reasons, we do not sell uncoated bullets.
Our special order Foundry Lead Alloy consists of 5% Antimony, 3% Tin and Highly Refined three nines 99.9% Pure Lead as a base. This custom alloy is more expensive and better performing than 92-6-2 alloy when used with our dedicated proprietary polymer bullet coatings. All of our hard cast bullets are heat treated to a BHN 17.5 + (LB scale Starrett).
(500) Packs = $5.00 Flat Rate Shipping.
(1,000) Packs = $10.00 Flat Rate shipping for (up to $100.00).
ALL other bullets, quantities and dollar amounts = FREE SHIPPING!.
Our FREE SHIPPING is honest. Other companies include their shipping cost(s) in their product pricing and then advertise "free shipping". That's shady. We don't do that.
